"Following a vein"?? I wouldn't be fooling around with that action! Eeesh.
I'd be callin' the university pretty quick!

Somewhere between wading through Big Cypress and getting home, JK acquired a rash while backpacking. It looked and acted like poison ivy - red, weepy, itchy - at first, but after several days of applying calamine it has traveled several inches up his leg in a very narrow path following a vein. Anyone ever deal with this sort of thing after backpacking through jungle-like environments? Wondering if it could be a worm/parasite. Thanks for any ideas.

Cheers, Navigator
